Babee Greens Wool Diaper Cover Giveaway

Made locally in the North Carolina mountains, Babee Greens takes cloth diapers to the highest level. Only natural fibers are used - hemp, merino wool, & organic cotton. Only the best for our babies right?

Babee Greens is known for their fitteds. I had a chance to feel these diapers in a local store. Let's just say, I couldn't stop touching it. It was sooooo soft. This is what all cloth diapers should be about!


The reason for my feature today is that Babee Greens are now expanding to covers! Wool Covers!

"The covers are lined with Merino Wool  made from Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified wool yarn. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a globally uniform testing and certification system for all stages of textile production. This certification ensures that products are free from harmful substances. There is no finer certification than the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. It goes beyond the organic label!"

The outside of the cover is made from old sweaters! Didn't we just talk about upcycling? :)

I was a very lucky Mama and I received a cover for P'Diddy.
Love our orange!


So soft and comfy he could have worn it all day!
And look at the fit...perfect! The legs were snug with no gaps and
the covers come in 3 sizes and they have 3 rows of snaps for growth


Organic T from GoBabyGoShop.com
  "Babee Greens (formerly Baby Greens Diaper Co.) has been in business for almost 10 years.  My business partner and I purchased the business in Feb. 2010 and although neither of us had any manufacturing background, we both had been in business before and had a strong desire to do something that we could be proud of.  And what could be better than making something in the USA, using only organic fabrics, recycling sweaters and trying to educate the population on the benefits of cloth diapering to their baby and to the environment!"

Would you believe me if I told you they made CASHMERE Diaper Covers and Longies too?
Have you ever heard of such a thing? How awesome!
















One of my lucky BeachBums gets to WIN a Wool Cover!
A cover lined in Merino Wool and made right here in the USA!
You choose size and gender color!

Another benefit of using hemp diapers is that hemp has no known insect predators and requires no pesticides or herbicides to grow

I follow CBM and learned cotton is the most heavily sprayed crop in the world next to coffee. If your baby is wearing non–organic cotton, they are exposed to the pesticides and chemicals that were used to grow and manufacture the fabric.

Mostly, I enjoyed reading about their certified organic fitted diapers. I am really looking into some fitted diapers.

I like that they've been around for a while.

Seems like they are the greenest of green cloth diapering!

I learned that Cotton attracts a wide range of insects that are treated with pesticides, fungicides and other sprays, and then fertilized with synthetic fertilizers that have a negative effect on the environment. Conventional cotton fabric is processed with Chlorine bleach to whiten the cotton.
